Episode 14: William Stoughton: Salem's Bloodthirsty Judge, Jury & Executioner

On today’s episode we are going to be learning about the judge who oversaw the Salem Witch Trials in the 1600’s. Even without any legal education, he would end up condemning 19 people to death by hanging and 1 man pressed to death for the crime of witchcraft. So gather round my sisters and brothers, and let’s see what the tea leaves tell us about the Not so Honorable Judge William Stoughton, the Bloodthirsty Witch Hunter of Salem, Massachusetts.

This podcast is hosted by Joshua Waters, the queer & sultry “Not so Evil Queen”
